Eric Reid, safety, was the man who sat side-by-side with Colin Kaepernick when Kap was starting his protest during the National Anthem. Reid is now a free-agent, and while he's not Eric Berry, he's an athletically gifted player who can sign on the cheap. He claims that hasn't yet been signed, not because of his talent, but because he bent the knee along with several other players.
Reid tweeted: “The notion that I can be a great signing for your team for cheap, not because of my skill set but because I’ve protested systemic oppression, is ludicrous,” Reid tweeted Thursday. “If you think is, then your mindset is part of the problem too.”
If owners, GM's, or a combination of the two are choosing not to sign marginal players (like Reid and like Kaepernick) because they're afraid of the fan backlash, fan protest, or just because they themselves disagree with what is perceived as an anti-patriotic act...Do you have a problem with that?
That is the genesis of our Thought-Provoking Daily Poll.
